She Devoured Those Carrots...

"She devoured those carrots"
That is what I said about Helen tonight. 

And up pops Charlotte from over the couch, and so matter of factly says....
"Devour means to to Gobble something up into your tummy"

What a smart little girl she is.  How, you ask, did such a little girl learn such a large word? 

Well, we have been reading a lot of Fancy Nancy lately. 

But I must admit...
 I owe this one to our good friend Word Girl.

Thank you Word Girl... PBS kids, you never let me down.

Little Charlotte is so adorable (especially with her new haircut!) I could devour her.


  1. yay for words! And I hope Luke devours his carrots today like Helen did!

  2. So when do we get to see the new 'do'?


Please share... I love to hear from readers!
